A new recall has been issued by Toyota covering the FJ Cruiser and the Tacoma because of incorrect tire placard labels.
The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced a recall for two of its models because of the incorrect tire placard labels. According to the car manufacturer, the affected vehicles, which include the FJ Cruiser and the Tacoma, will have to be taken back to the dealers for the necessary replacements as the company’s U.S. division believes that the type of tires might have an overlay label with the incorrect cold tire pressure inflation value for the spare wheel.
Because of this problem, the models fail to meet the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, the “Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home / Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information”. The affected Toyota FJ Cruiser and Toyota Tacoma vehicles are from the 2008 to 2014 model years. The company’s dealers will be inspecting the vehicles and make the necessary adjustments later on this month. Owners of these vehicles can contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 for additional details on the subject. The “repairs” will be made free of charge.
